Film: Seven Years in Tibet (view the trailer here)
Hosted by: Kent MacDonald, President of Northwood University
Rated PG-13, 2 hrs 19 min
Why Kent selected this film: There was a time I was attracted to mountaineering. That personal interest was my original motivation to learn more about Heinrich Harrer and watch Seven Years in Tibet. Over time, I have come to appreciate the deeper meaning of the movie. Although years have passed, the events of 1950 appear to be playing out again on the world stage. This is an inspirational film of survival and international affairs; one that reflects the intersection of culture, religion, political ideology and freedom.
Questions to consider while viewing:
1. What were you thinking as you finished watching the film?
2. How does this movie speak to current global events?
3. If you were to ask Heinrich Harrer a question, what would it be?
Here’s how you can be a part of the discussion:
